“We do think we overturned every rock to find the best option for both. It’s always a delicate balance,” Belle-Runnels said.
County Judge David Nicklas said he was pleased with the many coverage options Brinson Benefits gave them.
“It’s obvious that they did a very thorough job looking at all the options available to us and presenting us with what is going to be a more viable plan and a better plan for the county and for employees of the county,” he said. “The plans that [Belle-Runnels] presented and the ones Brinson Benefits suggested are very attractive at this point, in my opinion.”
Nicklas said the court would recess so they could have more time to familiarize themselves with the various coverage options before they make a decision. The court plans to make an official decision this morning.
